General Grants

If you have a worthwhile cause and would like to submit a grant application to the HACF, there are several options for you to consider.

Grants

The Homer Area Community Foundation welcomes and encourages the application of innovative and creative grant proposals that will promote the educational, recreational, environmental and cultural development of the Homer area. Grants will be awarded by the Homer Area Community Foundation from the Unrestricted Fund, the Bessie Edwards Education Fund, and the Youth Fund. Grant applications will be reviewed by the Foundation Board of Trustees and the members of the Homer Youth Advisory Committee. Grants, which show promise of helping a broad segment of citizens of the Homer area or help a traditional undeserved portion of the population, will be looked upon favorable by the grant review committee. Grants from the Homer Area Community Foundation support the organizations and programs in our community that serve the needs of people in such areas as health, education, human services, arts and culture, youth, and community development.

Upcoming General Grant Deadlines:

  • January 26, 2018
  • April 27, 2018

Grant proposals for more than $300 will be reviewed three times a year. Grant proposals for $300 or less are considered "mini-grants" and are due by the 30th of each month, for response by the 30th of the following month.
